Im telling you, its because our New GM is about to be announced and he really wanted to clean house but JR said he had to keep rivera, so then it made the most sense to keep the DC and OC but fire the peripherals.

We don't know exactly what's going on. Who knows? Maybe it's a positive. Maybe the LB coach or any of the released coaches have ties to a coach that's been or will be hired this off season and Rivera made their decision easy to move on. He needs to get his staff set soon.

I've been thinking lately (get out the fire extinguishers!) that some of Rivera's rookie coach mistakes, especially with the clock, may be because he hasn't had a former HC on his staff to advise him on the sideline. Most new coaches do. His staff was/is pretty green. Good for thinking outside of the box, bad for giving experienced advice.

Ray Lewis for LB Coach


Already has a job at ESPN.

And anyway, great players tend to make lousy coaches.

There are exceptions, and yes they're usually at the position coach level (Singletary was lousy as a head coach).

It's true though. Usually the less talented effort guys make good coaches. There are always exceptions of course.

Or they don't care because it's a business and you don't question what your team does. Also it's very miniscule in the world of the NFL

Firing Position Coaches < Arranging deck chairs on Titanic's maiden voyage..

I get that Ron had to fire somebody to quiet down the mob of angry Panther fans that wanted a team with a winning record, but I liked Graves and Belin. I don't think the LB or the WR (or RB) squads were the reason we kept blowing leads and loosing games.

As far as the firing of ST coach Brian Murphy, don't forget that Ron was defending him right until the end. Did ST get better after Brian left, yes. Was his firing in reaction to the loss after Marty got canned, yes...

Ron may not be a jerk, but he's got a lot of knee jerk in him..
